I don't use these new-fangled computers but I do use Google for my calendar. How can I subscribe?
Login to your google calendar account. On the left hand side of the screen, select the drop down for "Other calendars" and select Add by URL. Enter the following link: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/sca-caid.org_85io2drkp4a5mvhvvdin73lf7c%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics.
Please note that you cannot control the rate of refresh for Google calendars. It may take a while before the calendar data is populated into your calendar.
I am subscribed to the calendar, but I am not seeing updates.
When you click on the ICS link for the calendar, most browsers will try to open them with your calendar program and import them into your calendar. This is a point-in-time copy of the calendar and not really a subscription. Your calendar program will need to add the ICS link as a subscription.
Can I just add a single event?
Yes, if you are logged into your Google account and go to the full calendar link and click on any event you will see a "Copy to my calendar" button. This will allow you to add just a single event. Note, that this will be a copy of the event and not a subscription. Changes to the event may not be reflected later.
Wow! There sure are a lot of events on the calendar! How do I filter on event type?
When you use the WAR calendar look for an icon in the top right corner. Click on it to see the list of all the calendars currently displaying their events on the General War calendar. You can then deselect the ones you don't wish to see.
How do I see all the events for a single date?
The date at the top of the calendar can be clicked. Once clicked the view will switch to all the events for the selected date.
Hey! How come I don't see any events yet?
There are two reasons why you may not be seeing events.
- We just have not put them in the calendar yet. Please be patient as the event stewards will have the information online as soon as possible.
- Check your dates. Make sure you are on the correct days for the calendar. It's easy to get lost while clicking around and end up in the wrong month or year.
